The sixth photo you will see today (of the ones from my camera, at least) will be of CW and me wearing our St. Patty's Day outfits (and it is on topic--my dress is a Boden knitted dress), but the great majority of this post will highlight some Boden outfits that CW and I have worn recently. All you Boden babes are gonna love today's post. In fact, today is the very first IRL fitting room photo of CW wearing mini-Boden. ;)
I am wearing a Boden cotton knitted dress from Spring 2009. I believe it was called the Funky Knitted Dress (which is what they call anything with crazy mod flowers or shapes, I've decided...Boden doesn't go real inventive with naming things...cough, cough, Anthropologie). I wanted it so bad after seeing the cover of the Boden catalog with the beautiful model in it (fourth photo from the top), and when it went on sale, I bit as soon as I could.
I also loved baby CW's funky dress (LOL) when I saw it on the most precious little girl model in the catalog (fifth picture from the top), and I bought her's at near full price (you know Boden, you can always count on at least a 10% off coupon). CW was only FIVE months old. She couldn't even fit into it until last spring. :)
I understand it is an original Herman Miller or Eames??? Maybe? Whatever it is, they are pretty hot in the mid-century modern furniture market right now.)
Funky Knitted Tunic. This is what is currently available from Boden in the "funky" knitted range. I still like mine better, but I can see how this would be more appealing to those of you not into bright yellow florals. This also comes in a grey/white and teal/green version. (You can click the photo to go straight to Boden's website to see colors, sizes, measurements.)
CW is in a mix of Target and Gymboree. The pants are actually from when she was 6 months old. Turns out you can REALLY extend the life of pants because baby pants have a stretchy waistband and the legs may be short on a two-year old but will fit fine in the waist. Instant shorts!
CW was so sweet at Nordstrom's today. She tried on three different outfits from mini-Boden (you will see the other two next week during the Boden Weekly Review Roundup) and calmly posed with all of them. It was actually a lot of fun. We will buy one of the outfits tomorrow (I have to wait till I have enough money in my bank account--Rosemary from Nordstrom's at Tysons is so great she is calling me to take the info tomorrow and we are going to have them shipped to me for free--Nordstrom's really does have great customer service!). This dress is *not* the outfit we are going to buy. I let CW choose and this wasn't her favorite. So, I will wait for a sale (I hope it will get to sale!).
Funky Print Dress. You can see the different options, etc., if you click the photo. I like the blue daisy the most, but they have a pink floral and red spot.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. :) Don't drink too much green beer, okay?
I plan on getting up my next 40 and 40 post. I just couldn't get my act together on Tuesday and Wednesday. Don't know what the 40 and 40 is? Click here to see all the posts!
